    Lightbulb Package Forwarding Companies

    I was wondering how reliable these companies are. Did you ever use any of them? Some pretty sweet deals pop up on Newegg from time to time. I was thinking as Newegg doesn't ship outside of the U.S. perhaps these companies could help. From what I have seen, there charges aren't too hefty either. Viabox.com is one of those companies. It could be a viable alternative to those Amazon.co.bd and other groups. I have not accounted for custom duty and taxes though. Thanks in advance.

    most companies dont want to ship small packets. it costs them more. and as a result they also charge more.

    I was thinking of purchasing some items from Newegg worth around ~$400 in total. If I buy it through Amazon.com.bd group (Fuad vai), it will cost over 40k BDT. However, if I purchase it using Viabox, it will save me around 10k which is a lot. The only thing I am not sure about is the custom fees and taxes.

    bangladesh customs office harasses a lot. and no company will take responsibility unless they are properly compensated. so you can ship to bangladesh customs houses in dhaka, chittagong wherever and do the bargaining by yourself. but to me it is far more convenient to pay more to the import groups as you dont have to do the dirty things by yourself.

    AFAIK Freight Forwarding companies can help you with this matter. They will deal with the customs for you.
